Upcoming 2012 Home Video Releases

I thought it might be useful to have a reference thread that was discussing the new theatrical releases for 2012 and their upcoming total box office comparisons.

I just read that box office this calendar year has been up almost 10% as of this weekend.

I have a bunch of articles to post up on the new 2012 releases and a bunch of data sources to link to.

This should be a fun thread.

Hop wasn't released last year on DVD?

(edit)

There are 2 movies coming out this year in theaters that will probably not significantly help DVD sales- Titanic and Phantom Menace (in 3D). And there's also Beauty and the Beast. Those films could easily boost ticket sales but have little real effect on DVD sales as people who went to see them likely already have the films on DVD (or blu-ray when available).

Hop was in theaters last Easter. Its being released this year on home video around Easter. Its about a bunny http://www.iwantcandy.com/ :biggrin:

I think its entirely possible that Titanic and Phantom Menace 3D will help Blu-ray sales, Titanic especially. Beauty and the Beast 3D less so as that was a recent Blu-ray release.

'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1'

This is hitting home video sooner than I thought to coincide with Valentine's Day.

In 2010 there were two Twilight Saga movies which helped the 2010 vs 2011 TBO be the way it was so its a good start for 2012 home video TBO to see this title.

There also is a mention that Walmart is now at DVD marketshare of 40% for Blu-ray as well as DVD.

Feb 10 2012 is midnight Friday night 12:00 AM 1/10/12 12:01 AM 1/11/12

Walmart to ‘Break Dawn’ Midnight Feb. 10

30 Jan, 2012
By: Erik Gruenwedel


'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1'

Walmart Jan. 30 said it would release The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 with exclusive features on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in a special midnight opening Feb. 10 at more than 2,700 stores nationwide.

With Walmart representing about 40% of all DVD and Blu-ray sellthrough, the retailer rolling out the red carpet for the next-to-last installment in the popular teen vampire franchise bodes well for the bottom line at Summit Home Entertainment, including new owner Lionsgate.


Indeed, the "Twilight" franchise has generated about $1.5 billion in revenue from both theatrical and home entertainment. The first title, The Twilight Saga, generated $194 million in home entertainment revenue, according to reports.

The Breaking Dawn — Part 1 DVD will retail for $22.96 and the Blu-ray for $26.96. Special features exclusive to Walmart include Bella's Wedding Special Edition, featuring collectible wedding dress packaging, a fabric poster of Bella and Edward's big day, and music videos from Bruno Mars and Christina Perri.

Other "Twilight" merchandise include The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 National Edition (DVD $19.96, Blu-ray $22.96); The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn soundtrack (CD $11.88); The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Dance Poster ($5.00); and books from the "Twilight" series, including Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, at $7.64 each.

Beginning at 11 p.m. the Bentonville, Ark.-based retail behemoth will bow in-store "Twilight" parties featuring giveaways, movie trivia and a bakery stocked with Twilight-themed treats, such as cupcakes and cakes. Store visitors also can catch a cameo appearance from Rosalie Cullen (Nikki Reed) on the Walmart’'s in-store television network while waiting for the midnight unveil.

"We're excited to give the millions of 'Twilight' fans a place to unite, celebrate and receive exclusive Breaking Dawn collectibles at a great price,” said Seong Ohm, SVP and GM of entertainment for Walmart U.S.

As long as they mean 40% of DVD and 40% of Blu-ray-- and not 40% of optical-- then that seems like a Blu-ray adoption milestone worth pointing out.
